Today, we turn our attention to Leviathan Cycle, a death metal band hailing from Dayton, Ohio, USA. In this review, I will delve into their impressive second single, "The Burnt Page," exploring its character, style, story, potential, and more.

Leviathan Cycle is a promising death metal band that recently caught my attention with their remarkable single, "The Burnt Page," released on June 18, 2021. Although a relatively new band, having only two single releases to their name, they defy expectations with their exceptional quality and professionalism. Leviathan Cycle demonstrates a level of experience and musical prowess that surpasses that of many new acts. From their visual aesthetics to their musical ideas, style, blend, technical standards, and even the accompanying music video, Leviathan Cycle showcases a level of maturity that is truly impressive. As someone who closely follows the industry, I often prioritize potential in new bands, and Leviathan Cycle undeniably leaves a positive first impression.

"The Burnt Page" is a skillfully crafted song, embracing the influences of classic death metal. The collective opts for a straightforward approach in this early stage of their career, which is understandable. The song exudes a powerful atmosphere, leaving a lasting impression on the listener. I can still vividly recall the main breakdown section resonating in my mind. With a keen focus on powerful grooves and riffs, the producer successfully highlights the band's cohesive sound, effectively delivering the intended message.

The band blend incorporates influences from the revered death metal band, Death, which is a delightful nod to the genre's roots. Moreover, modern metalcore and deathcore elements have subtly influenced their sound. This openness and willingness to infuse classical death metal elements with their own unique flavor showcase Leviathan Cycle's potential for carving their own path within the metal scene.

The music video accompanying "The Burnt Page" deserves commendation as well. As an independent band with limited resources, creating high-quality work that resonates with the metal community can be a challenging endeavor. While the video may be simple, filmed in a modest setting with a minimal budget, it's important to recognize the essence of the creative process. As my father-in-law once wisely remarked, "Burak, there are only seven notes for everybody if you think that way." The true measure lies in one's ability to imbue those notes with vision. In this regard, I am genuinely impressed by Leviathan Cycle's attitude and commitment. Their approach evokes memories of the heroes from my own musical journey, satisfying the desires of dedicated metalheads. From the music itself to the lyrics and the genuine passion they exude, Leviathan Cycle leaves an indelible impression. The first time I watched the video, I immediately connected with the song, and that connection has only grown stronger since.

From a technical standpoint, Leviathan Cycle excels in every aspect. The song's blend of modern and classic death metal sound is superb, with fat guitars and vocals seamlessly integrated into the music, highlighting the overall sonic experience rather than focusing solely on specific elements.

Considering all these factors, I am thoroughly impressed by Leviathan Cycle. While "The Burnt Page" may not represent a monumental leap forward in the band's career, it undoubtedly holds a special place in the hearts of fans. I remain highly optimistic about the band's future, as they possess all the necessary foundations to evolve and become a source of pride for their dedicated supporters.
